The design inspiration came from the amazing scene of the Mediterranean Sea where the  blue sea and the white sands make people feel relaxing and fresh. The designer integrated the clear feature with modern design philosophy and keep a perfect balance by creating a series of changes and connections. Under the modern style with blue and white tone,a variety of geometrical elements  line out the simple and clear shapes, bringing the space a unique sense of future.
